Stitch Fix Review #1: March 2015

What’s better than getting new clothes?  Having a personal stylist select clothes for you, then ship them directly to your doorstep!  When the box arrives and you open it, it’s like Christmas morning, like opening a present!  Stitch Fix is an excellent clothes styling service I recommend!  
How does Stitch Fix work?  You take an in-depth survey about your sizes, your style and pricing preferences.  Then, a personal styling service sends you 5 items to try once a month.  Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece in the shipment, plus a letter from your stylist.  When you receive the shipment, you try on the items, select which ones you want, then ship back the ones you don’t want.  The fee for the service is $20 a month, which includes free shipping and free returns.  What’s best is the fee is deducted from the total of the items you want to keep!  If you want to keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount!
This is my review of shipment #1:
The styling card:

Market & Spruce: Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee – cost to keep $44
This tee is a soft gray material that is flowy.  I like the way it’s made in the hi-low style.  I would have kept this top, but the price point was a little too high for a tee, so I sent it back.
Verdict: Returned

Market & Spruce: Anise Striped Vest – cost to keep $78
When I took out this vest from the box, I sighed because I already have a similar vest from Gap.  If I hadn’t already had a similar vest I would have bought this one.  It’s well made and it fit great too.
Verdict: Returned

41Hawthorn: Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer – cost to keep $78
This navy blazer fits so well and the material is high end, but two things I didn’t like about it: the striped lining (which showed on the sleeves) and the 3/4 length sleeves.  I would prefer a solid lining and long sleeves.  
Verdict: Returned

Pixley: Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress – cost to keep $68
 How did Stitch Fix know I have been looking for a striped dress like this?  What I like about this dress is you can wear this in Fall with a jacket and boots, Winter with a vest, tights and boots and Spring with a jacket or scarf.  This dress is well made and fits perfectly!  I’ll be wearing this dress in tomorrow’s Trendy Wednesday Link Up, so be sure to come back tomorrow to see how I styled it!
Verdict: Kept

Skies Are Blue: Keone Blouse – cost to keep $48
This grid pattern blouse has a band of white material on the bottom and down the middle of the back.  I can wear this top with dress pants, a skirt or jeans.  It’s a keeper!
Verdict: Kept

Have you tried Stitch Fix?  I really like Stitch Fix and see what all the hype is about now.  The pieces are well made, the styling service is top-notch and the customer service is great.  My stylist Kaitlyn did an excellent job (the stylist’s name is on the letter).  Thank you Kaitlyn if you read this!  I look forward to receiving next month’s Stitch Fix!
Here’s a tip to get your best Stitch Fix: If you’re on Pinterest, setup a board called “Stitch Fix Inspiration”.  Go to Stitch Fix’s Pinterest board and pin their photos on your “Stitch Fix Inspiration” board.  They have boards for different styles if you’re unsure of which ones to choose, like Classic Chic, Romantic, Classic, Preppy, etc.  You can also pin other photos from the internet here as well.  This will let you stylist know what your favorite style is.
You can click on Stitch Fix to receive your 1st shipment!

  1. I keep wondering about this, but I'm hesitant because I like getting good deals on my clothes and not paying full price. That dress is really cute and I look forward to seeing how you wear it. Maybe I just need to check out their Pinterest Board for a bit.

  2. I just received my second stitch fix! One thing I have leanrned is the value of detailed feedback as to why you're keeping/returning an item. I created and linked a ponterest board of styles I love for my stylist and she actually used it as inspiration! I think you should give it another try for sure! A little known tip is that if you did the item cheaper elsewhere, they'll match the price. It's worth a Google 🙂

  3. I got that same tee-shirt you returned in my last fix, only in a pretty green color. I kept it because I liked the color , cut, and material. I really like the Keone Blouse you kept. That's really nice.

  4. My favorites are the dress and the grid patterned blouse! I am glad you kept those two! I really need to try Stitch Fix again… I used them 4 times in the past and its been over a year since I've used them again. I really need to sign up for a Spring box!

  5. I was just thinking today that once my hubby and I sit down and start doing a shopping budget I will definitely consider StitchFix and see what all the hype is about. I love what you kept, but I also like that vest you returned.

  6. I've heard of Stitch Fix before and was really interested in the concept. But I just LOVE shopping for myself!! It's like a stress relieving pass time, plus I know myself. I would never return anything!!!

    I can, however, see the benefit of this service for people like both of my sisters who HATE shopping and NEVER make time to go out and get new clothes. I'm going to send them both your post!

    Thank you so much for joining my weekly #reasonstodress style linkup, I love having you!

  7. I love this idea, but this can get dangerous for me! Lol. Thanks for linking up at Who's Wearing What Wednesdays at Pastries, Pumps and Pi!

  8. I have heard of this and being someone that is a jeans and tank type person, maybe I should try this out. Pinning! Thanks for sharing this at Totally Terrific Tuesday last week. I can't wait to see what you have lined up for this week!
